Local Scarborough McDonald’s restaurants stepping up to Feed Our Frontlines with $35,000 pledge to Scarborough Health Network

Starting on June 1st, a portion of proceeds from every coffee sold in Scarborough McDonald’s will go directly toward purchasing meals for our frontline health care workers.

SCARBOROUGH (May 31, 2021) – 23 local McDonald’s restaurants in Scarborough are stepping up to Feed Our Frontlines during the intense third wave of COVID-19. Beginning on June 1, 2021, and for a limited time only, a portion of the proceeds from every coffee purchased will go toward providing hot meals to Scarborough Health Network (SHN) frontline health care workers at the Birchmount, Centenary and General hospitals.

The Scarborough community has rallied behind SHN’s frontline workers since the beginning of the pandemic, and now local Scarborough McDonald’s restaurants have also stepped up.


“It’s an honour to be able to show our appreciation for the SHN frontline healthcare workers after everything they have done for the community during the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Dale Bartlett, McDonald’s Canada owner-operator in Scarborough. “I am proud to have my restaurants be among 23 McDonald’s locations taking part in this important initiative.”

“Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Scarborough Health Network has been on the frontlines handling some of the highest number of cases in Ontario,” says Elizabeth Buller, President and CEO of SHN. “Our courageous staff and physicians have been working tirelessly to protect our community, and we are tremendously grateful for our local Scarborough McDonald’s commitment to supporting our community. All funds raised through this initiative will provide meals for our most embattled frontline workers, and help them stay strong as we battle the third wave of the pandemic.”

“During the pandemic, SHN has seen an outpouring of support from our Scarborough community and beyond,” says Ryan Baillie, Vice President, Community Development at SHN Foundation. “We are so thankful to our local McDonald’s restaurants for spearheading the Feed Our Frontlines campaign and supporting our health care workers. Our local McDonald’s have been longstanding partners of SHN Foundation, and this latest initiative shows their commitment to supporting our community hospitals.”
